It’s World Gin Day this Saturday, this paired with the Queen’s 90th birthday means double the festivities are in order this weekend.

To celebrate, the Spirit of Harrogate, home of Harrogate based Slingsby Gin, is opening its doors to gin lovers across the region.

On 11th June, visitors to the Spirit of Harrogate will receive a complimentary mini Slingsby Gin cocktail. Slingsby Gin’s mixologists will be holding exclusive gin talks and cocktail demonstrations throughout the day and with every bottle of Slingsby Gin purchased, the Spirit of Harrogate will provide a complimentary Slingsby speakeasy glass.

The Spirit of Harrogate will be open 11am-5.30pm and there is no booking necessary.

Marcus Black, Slingsby Gin Co-founder & Joint Managing Director, said: “With the popularity of gin in Yorkshire booming, and with the Queen’s 90thbirthday falling on the same day, we think this World Gin Day is going to be a very special affair.”

Mike Carthy, fellow Co-founder & Joint Managing Director, added: The Spirit of Harrogate is in its inaugural year and so we can’t wait to welcome visitors, old and new, to our home!”
